Dance Film Lab is an informal work-in-progress screening centered on discussion and on April 1st, it will be moderated by filmmaker and Professor Gabri Christa. DFL sessions offer a fun and creative space to gather and share information on methods and tools, and address technical, practical, and artistic challenges, while providing artists with process-related feedback.  
Attend the Lab:
The screening will feature films chosen from submissions in various stages of production. Take this opportunity to connect with artists and audiences.

Submit Your Work:

Interested artists may submit their project via the Dance Film Lab submissions page.

A few things to consider when submitting your work:
  • Dance Film Lab welcomes everyone from seasoned filmmakers to those beginning to work in the medium.
  • Entrants whose films are chosen, must be able to attend the upcoming Lab on April 1st.
